Maps related to the lynching of George Peck, 1880

These maps of Montgomery County provide context to the events of the 1880 lynching of George Peck, geo-locating people and places as of 1878. G.M. Hopkins surveyed the entirety of the County and entered his atlas in the Office of the Librarian of Congress, Washington, DC, according to Act of Congress in the year 1878. This publication was accomplished according to subscription: those who appear on the map were listed as “patrons.”  Official source information:
